The Late Show’s Stephen Colbert spoke about the newest Trumpcare failure with the demise of the Graham-Cassidy healthcare bill, which died at the Senate.

Last night on The Late Show, host Stephen Colbert thought he’d kick off his monologue with some good news for a change. “The GOP plan to repeal Obamacare is officially dead,” Colbert says, receiving a huge ovation from the crowd. When the applause dies down, Colbert adds: “That is something I’ve said three times now.”

He’s not kidding. This is just the newest attempt by the GOP to get Obamacare repealed. It’s come up short a couple times already, and with the looming demise of the Graham-Cassidy bill, Trumpcare has died its third death. The promise to repeal Obamacare immediately has not been so easy for Donald Trump.

Colbert then gets into how the GOP is already making plans for their fourth Obamacare repeal attempt. Even with Graham-Cassidy still wheezing out its dying breaths. Colbert compares it to bringing your new date to the hospital to see your wife, apathetically telling her she’s going to pull through. Clearly it seems that they’re in a losing battle here but are not tapping out just yet.
